What says..

So pristine was the remodelled school that we were beginning to wonder whether the girls felt able to let rip, but an art room full of plaster and paint be-smattered girls enthusiastically constructing props for a forthcoming play dispelled our concerns. We’ve seen some Forest Schools in our time and it has to be said that this is one where the word ‘forest’ is stretched rather thinly. This friendly and extremely well resourced prep would be…

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.
